leader nancy pelosi and asked her are about the fast approaching deadline. congress woman pa lo pelosi, we back to "fox news sunday." >> welcome to the capitol. >> the white house says sequestration will have a severe effect on many americans. house republicans agree but say the answer is to find other spending cuts, not tax hikes. >> i would think that sequestration is a bad idea all around. this should be something that is out of the question. the fact is we have had plenty of spending cuts. $1.6 trillion in the budget control act. what we need is growth. we he need growth with jobs. and if you have spending cuts education of our children and other investments like the national institutes of health where you are hindering growth you are not delegate t going te deficit. we need more revenue and more cuts. i would like to see that in a big balanced bold proposal. short of that, we must do something to avoid the sequester. >> chris: here is what house speaker boehner said this week. >> at some point, washington, has to deal with its spending problem. i have watched them kick this can do
would expect that nancy pelosi is going to be speaker again pretty soon. >> speaking at the house democratic policy retreat in virginia yesterday president obama looked into his crystal ball predicting the democrats will take back control of the house "pretty soon." the reality of democrats seizing the lower chamber is a bit more sober. house democrats need to pick up 17 seats to retake the majority, and according to politico, just four republican encome bents represent districts that lean democratic while 15 democrats will be defending their seats in areas that tilt republican. redistricting has not helped. the redrawn districts in 2010 left 109 republican seats more secure compared with just 67 democratic seats that were made safer. the 2012 election bore the fruit of those changes. the cook political report found that while house republicans won just 49% of the popular vote, they took 54% of house seats. the political reality, however, may matter more than the actual numbers. jeremy peters writes in "the "new york times"" house democrats are starting to appreciate a new politic
the leadership of our leader and then speaker nancy pelosi we work with president obama to make sure we turn -- we turn an economy that was hemorrhaging 800,000 jobs a month. we have turned it into a economy that has created 6 million jobs over the last three years. under the leadership of president obama and our leader nancy pelosi, we have helped 105 million americans who no longer have to fear if their child contracts diabetes or in an accident that they will run out of insurance before that child is ready to go back to living a regular life. under this president, we told hundreds of thousands of young americans that they can dream was and no longer be separated from their families because they came through no fault of their own to this country without immigration documents. so, my fellow americans and fellow democrats, are we ready to tell our president, barack obama, that we're ready to work? are we ready to tell our president that we're ready to lead with him and take on the major challenges? because i remember what a good friend and neighbor of mine always said to his children. he use
knows we need growth and nancy pelosi was talking, we need growth on the sunday shows and that was the message from mitt romney in the first debate where he did well and even conservatives start today say look at him, we like mitt romney. we didn't know if we loved him, but we love this guy. that's what he's talking about is growth and how you stimulate the economy. where has the growth been. the last quarter of last year, we went down and we contracted. we didn't grow at all we contracted and now the unemployment rate is when barack obama first took office at what point do the american people say, you aren't doing it? >> we're probably past that point in washington a long time ago. you referenced the poll and talked about pessimism and more and more talk about the new normal, an unhappy economy and that's the way that things are going to be, another poll or another question in that fox news poll. do you think that the president's stimulus worked in 2009? no, you don't think that it worked. he's proposing another round of this. i think at a certain point this becomes a

recall. we did not get an answer at all from john boehner, the house speaker. nancy pelosi does not own a gun. host: what about the chairman of the house judiciary and senate judiciary committees? the legislation is going to go to them. host: that is -- caller: that is one of the most interesting ones. senator leahy is a gun owner, but he is also a very strong advocate for gun control. he will be delivering one of the key points in the debate. their committees are likely to be the first out the door with legislation. there will be interesting things coming from some unlikely he, coming from vermont, who lives in a state where gun ownership is not all that unusual. it will be interesting to see if he can thread the needle between a healthy respect for guns and a healthy concern for guns and gun safety. i think that he will be a very interesting player to watch. host: let me conclude by asking how you interpreted the president's remarks yesterday in minneapolis. what does that mean for passage? caller: i think it is clear that they do not have the votes for assault weapons ban. there is a
there will be frustrations, but he said if you keep focused i expect nancy pelosi will be speaker again pretty soon. echoing what you just said the american people are largely with us on all of these issues, and we have got to go for it. >> the republican congress right now is less popular than head lice. it's true. there was a poll head lice colonoscopies, root canals -- still more popular than -- oh gosh what is that -- std -- >> stephanie: chlamydia? >> no. >> stephanie: not the one okay. >> anyway they are at risk and even they are saying and worried about it that if they really botch this -- all of these fiscal debates that they are going to be in trouble in 2014. well, they are doing a really good job at botching these by targeting absolutely the wrong people in our world, and everybody i think is catching on, and so we'll see, although eric canter -- i don't know if you saw. he gave a speech that sounded really similar to the president's inaugural address. hit all of the points. they are trying to remake themselves. so we'll see. >> stephanie: yeah, i hear the presiden
to congratulate and thank nancy pelosi for her tireless efforts in the last election cycle and all of your leadership. thank you, joe kelly, my fellow new yorker. i am stand she had to leave, but i was always reassured to see her on television when i was worried about the outcome. i want to thank steve israel, who i think has been one of the most thoughtful people in the house and you proved once again -- and who proved once again that if you really want to be successful in the long run in this business, you have to be good politics and policy. you have to think about what we're going to do and how will affect people. i have the honor of campaigning for a lot of you in the last election. i am very excited about the new members.
